Hope this isn't a repost... Posting here since I can't post in the news area.

2012 Chevy Cruze Eco gets 64.4 mpg in 48-state, 9,564-mile drive

The Australian hypermiling duo of John and Helen Taylor have accomplished their goal of breaking the existing record for fuel economy achieved in a gasoline-fed production vehicle during a drive that touched some slice (defined here as at least 30 miles) of all 48 contiguous states...
It is interesting that although they mention Wayne Gerdes, they didn't mention Hypermilers complete new Guinness verified World Record at 68.54mpg (US)! - CleanMPG Forums (in a Civic Hybrid). I haven't compared the routes but the HCH record was set during the winter which can cause a significant mileage hit from cold weather along w/extra rolling resistance due to snow and rain.
